Some of us here aren't very good with plants. Sort of like locusts and pyroclastic flows aren't good with plants. But we really respect folks who are, and conceptually, at least, we appreciate a good planter when we see one. The Truss Planter ($98), designed by Nobuhiro Sato, takes the form of a crumbling building, with steel supports exposed. (If you're not sure whether this is quite your thing, click through to see a second design.) We love the idea of a miniature cityscape on a concrete balcony - and if you're black-thumbed too, you can always put in a candle instead of a plant.
